    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Jan 12, 2017

    Titans #7 is a simple story, with a simple premise" and it's absolutely brilliant! This issue captures a nostalgic sense as it puts it's characters front and center, while focusing on hope, love, friendship, and understanding. So much of today's comics are centered around stopping the biggest, world ending threat, that creative teams forget much else. That's what makes this issue special. As the comic industry flocks in one direction, Abnett stands and turns against them to deliver what could easily be considered the best follow-up to come after DC Universe Rebirth. Hope is still out there" Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Jan 11, 2017

    Weeks is a reliable storyteller. What his art may lack in sizzle, Weeks more than makes up with easy to follow layouts and strong, expressive characters. In Weeks' hands, the Titans don't look like teens, but young adults ready to make their mark together. This was exactly the kind of story the book needed after the prolonged battle with Abra Kadabra. Keep an eye on Titans. This is a book that's only going to get better from here on out and now's a great time to catch up. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Jan 11, 2017

    Titans succeeds at showing a superhero team pull together in a new city whilst showcasing their dynamics in succinct ways. It also offers a big action scene and some tantalizing new threads to chew on concerning how The Watchmen plays into the future DC books. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Jan 12, 2017

    Dan Abnett is fast becoming the MVP of DCs post-Rebirth universe, and this series is a glowing testament to that fact.  With his writing here, not to mention his work on Aquaman, he has shown the ability to balance humour, action and epic-scale storytelling while still keeping his characters feeling multi-dimensional and utterly relatable.  The artwork by Weeks here is the cherry on the sundae, and with the beginning of a new arc and a fresh start for our heroes, Titans seems destined to remain at the forefront of DCs post-Rebirth output for quite some time.

    Dark Knight News - Tyler Harris Jan 14, 2017

    Moving on to the artwork, Weeks really delivers in this book. His drawings are incredible to look at and while I enjoyed the work of Brett Booth during the first arc, I would have no complaints if Weeks decided to stick around, even though that seems very unlikely. All in all, this book was a solid brick in the wall of the DC Universe. The way Abnett handled the characters was amazing and just topped off with the solid art from Weeks. Moving forward, I am very interested to see what happens with this series. The move to Manhattan is an interesting one and will no doubt bring a whole lot more trouble for the Titans as time goes on, and I will definitely be there to soak all of it in. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Deejay Dayton Jan 15, 2017

    I was also really pleased to see Mal and Karen Duncan back in the book. They were an important part of Titans Hunt, and were all but left out of the first story arc here. That looks to be changing, big time. Read Full Review

    Shoot The Breeze Comics - James Portis Mar 7, 2017

    All things considered, It was pretty good nothing over the top but solid with allot of development. No new plots are introduced, nothing goes out of its way to confuse readers and thats good. Very solid filler. Thanks for reading and Ill catch you guys next time Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jan 11, 2017

    We get our Titans team established in a new location in this issue, but more importantly........ We get to see the team actually doing stuff, while also throwing in a lot of exposition and a bunch of fun along the way.  Yeah, it's looking like the start to a fun arc and not to mention the beginning of a friendship I can't wait to see more of.  All that and Lee Weeks doing excellent fill in art here that gives us a really fun retro style.

    Comics: The Gathering - mahargen Jan 11, 2017

    I'm not getting into half as much as I'd like to, so I can simply say that this is a book you need to be reading. It's a monthly, so there's really no excuse. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jan 14, 2017

    Titans has been one of the few books I'm keeping up with as it seems like the type that will be important in revealing more of what's been going on in the bigger sense. Abnett touches on that a bit here with Superman's arrival and it's a welcome nudge on top of what Kadabra was going on about before. This issue is all about the place setting and world building with the team relocating to Manhattan and it's a lot of fun. I also liked the bits with Donna and Roy but I can't imagine anyone taking Roy seriously with the backwards hat. He still needs a serious outfit redesign. The addition of Lee Weeks for the artwork this time around was definitely a solid choice for what's at hand in getting into the nuts and bolts of the move with some solid layouts and great character moments throughout, especially in the portrayal of Superman.

    The Batman Universe - Jim Remolde Jan 13, 2017

    We also get an interesting exchange between Donna and Roy. Dan Abnett continues with the idea that they had a prior relationship and that may spark again. The new design of Tempest I am not a fan of. He just does not look right with a van dyke beard. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jan 13, 2017

    Titans #7 captures the spirit of what made so many of us fall in love with this franchise back in the Marv Wolfman/George Perez days. Dan Abnett masterfully juggles multiple plotlines at the same time, seamlessly transitioning between them all without missing a beat. While the Flash and Superman race stole the show in this issue the rest of the Titans were able to get some needed screen time to further flesh out the various dynamics within the team. At the same time, Abnett is able to build anticipation for future storylines as Psimon is brought back in a major way. If you're a fan of the Titans franchise I highly recommend picking up Titans #7, whether you've read this series before or not. Read Full Review

    Just for the walk down memory lane alone I liked this issue a lot. It reminded me of all those great books from the 80's and 90's that I loved so much that looked and felt just like this. Read Full Review

    GWW - Andrew Jan 11, 2017

    Overall, I really enjoyed the book. I am starting to lose track again with how many times the Flash has died only to return. I am going to need to start using a flow chart on a dry erase board to keep track of everything. Read Full Review
